Video Conferencing Now Available in the Barker Library

Posted September 3rd, 2009 by Darcy Duke

Video conferencing is now available in the Barker Library Media Suite!

Need to meet with someone who is off-campus for the day, or perhaps on the other side of the world?

Barker library is now equipped with an H.323 compatible (IP video-conferencing) system – this system can only be used with other H.323 systems (no Skype, etc.).

The Barker Media Suite is available anytime the library is open, but MIT community members may make reservations by contacting the Barker Library Service Desk.

Other resources and capabilities in the Barker Media Suite:

  • DVDs and videos: view items from Barker’s collection of engineering-related DVDs and videos
  • Viewing area: use for small group viewings of web-accessible seminars, lectures, and other video material available through MIT World, OCW, and non-MIT sites
  • Presentation space: hook your laptop up to the 48″ plasma screen for small group presentations (or use the instruction computer attached to the lecturn)
